    US: No wrongdoing in handling child immigrants

    A federal investigation that included surprise inspections was unable to substantiate 16 accusations by advocacy groups that the government packed into frigid cells children caught crossing the border alone, made them sleep on hard floors and provided inadequate food or medical care. Other claims about treatment of the children are still under review, according to the Homeland Security Department.

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne wants a federal commission to approve an Arizona requirement that people using a federal form to register to vote prove they are citizens.

The U.S. Supreme Court in June ruled that Arizona could not require such proof from people using the form allowed under the federal "motor voter" law. But the high court said Arizona could ask the Election Assistance Commission to approve the citizenship proof requirement. If the commission refused, Arizona could seek ask a federal court to overturn the commission's decision.

Horne released a letter on Wednesday that he wrote to the commission saying he would sue if they didn't allow the proof requirement by Aug. 19.

Most Arizonans use a state form that requires citizenship proof required by 2004s Proposition 200.
